The Best Ever Snickerdoodle Cookies

The Best Ever Snickerdoodle Cookies (A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock and Roll)

(Recipe from Lovin' From the Oven via Mrs. Fields)


1/2 cup room temperature unsalted butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Cinnamon Sugar:

2 tablespoons granulated sugar 

1 teaspoon cinnamon


1. In a small bowl stir together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar with a whisk.

2. In a mixer, cream the butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and continue mixing until incorporated. 

3. On low speed, mix in the dry ingredients just until combined. Chill the dough for 1 hour.

4. When ready, preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. 

5. Combine the cinnamon sugar ingredients in a small bowl. 

6. Roll the dough into small balls and then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. 

7. Bake on a parchment lined sheet pan for 10-12 minutes. The cookies will look underdone, but leave them on the sheet pan to continue cooking while they cool on top of a cooling rack. 

Makes about 16-18 cookies.
